Acts 2:1-4 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  God, Breathe on Me.  Topics:  2 at end.

The Holy Spirit at Pentecost
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat on each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”  (AKJV)  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com

Along with the aspect of “wind,” within The Holy Spirit (here Holy Ghost) there is an aspect of “breath.”  God’s breath comes through the Holy Spirit.  We learn that scripture is “God-breathed,” (2 Timothy 3:16).  And there is an old hymn that speaks particularly to this aspect of God, the breathing of His Spirit: “Breathe on Me, Breath of God.”  The lyrics were written by Edwin Hatch in 1878, and it’s in public domain. 

Breathe on Me, Breath of God

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love what Thou dost love,
And do what Thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Until my heart is pure,
Until with Thee I will one will,
To do and to endure.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Till I am wholly Thine,
Until this earthly part of me
Glows with Thy fire divine.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
So shall I never die,
But live with Thee the perfect life
Of Thine eternity.

This might be considered a poem or psalm to the Holy Spirit.  Every stanza asks for God to breathe, and varied outcomes are requested in the second line of each stanza.  In the first, the request is for the Breath of God to fill him (the writer) with life anew.  The second stanza asks that God breathe until his (the writer’s) heart is pure.  The third asks for breath until he is wholly Thine (God’s).  The last outcome is so that he shall “never die.”

These are four beautiful desires from the writer of these lyrics to God’s Holy Spirit.  Could they not be the desires of us all who believe?  The desires of all who believe in this holiest of Spirits, that of the living God?  Do we not all want to be filled with life anew; have pure hearts; to be wholly God’s; and never die? 

Can we not pray this for those not only for ourselves, as in the song, but for those for whom we have great concerns?  Perhaps our prayers along this line could make a huge difference, as God answers.  Of course, we do not always know the hearts of those for whom we pray.  Not everyone we pray for does know the Lord Jesus.  Not everyone understands the indwelling of the Holy Spirit; and so this song may not be meaningful.  However, if such a person were to hear it sung, perhaps some interest would be piqued as to what those unfamiliar lyrics are all about.

Well, something like that would be a “God-thing.”  But we can still pray that those who struggle, including those who do not know the Lord, will find Him and then will love His Holy Spirit’s being in their lives.  Those we know in dire situations regarding LIFE would be very logical choices for our prayers and the effects of the Holy Spirit as He breathes into us and in our lives.

Lord, help us to grow in You as Your Spirit breathes into our lives.  Help us to pray for those who need You . . . and Your Spirit . . . so greatly.  Bless them, Lord.

Topics:  Pray for the willingness to pray for those who need the touch of the breath of the Holy Spirit so greatly.
